Cheap car insurance provider the Co-operative is sponsoring the competition, asking for younger drivers to provide stories describing what it means to them to pass their driving test. Competition entrants are eligible for prizes every week, such as a sat nav, with the grand prize winner receiving a free annual car insurance policy from the insurer.
In order to enter the contest, young motorists can go to the Co-operative insurance page on Facebook and share a story through the use of The Big Test app. Entrants will need to either upload a video or a photo depicting how they plan to celebrate passing their test in the even that they haven’t done so yet, or how they did celebrate if they passed their test.
Co-operative Insurance’s head of motor insurance, Grant Mitchell, said that passing your driving test has always been a cause for celebration, but getting behind the wheel of your own car carries both several responsibilities and a high price tag. The average cost to get on the road is around £4,459, said Mr Mitchell, adding that insurance is responsible for a large part of these costs.
Co-operative has acknowledged the high costs in the past, as it has introduced insurance geared towards young drivers to aid younger motorists reduce their premium prices. However, now motorists have the chance to receive an entire year of free cover by creatively telling their story on the insurer’s Facebook page, added the insurance director.
